Trail Information


The Prospector OHV Backcountry Complex is a network of several hundred miles of trails throughout western Utah. The plans were approved in 2010 to start funding the project to add signs and maps throughout the area. Leg one of this section starts at Utah highway 68 and takes you over to Allen's Ranch Road, also giving access to Little Moab and The Great Wall. This is an easy day trip from Salt Lake City or Provo and can give you some challenges with the spurs offered, or you can plan for the long haul and ride for days throughout this network ending up in Eureka, Vernon, Stockton, or even Dougway. Sometimes, all we need is a dirt road and a full tank of gas.

Road is in great condition. Dunes alongside are pretty clean right now. Surprisingly there was not a soul at Little Moab itself, so I had lots of rock crawling to myself.

Mainly a dirt road that'll connect you to other trails. Little Moab is always fun though, but usually crowded too.

Came out here after a week of storms hoping to get in some snow wheeling but were disappointed to only see a skiff and some mud. Ended up driving through this and Allen's Ranch back to Broad Canyon where we found a few inches to play around in.

4 stars - its got a lot of variety and the snow was pretty good but bad for crawling which made for more careful approaches and descents. Was in my built 91 Toyota with my brother in his built 97 Jeep XJ for a bit of easy snow wheeling. We had a mix of snow and sun all in the same day. In all it was a great day. These lines on the rocks don't really have names so I'll call this "Heck's V Pull Out" (not Hell's because it wasn't that bad) where I was able to break an axle. =) Mostly driver error turning out of a pretty steep angle where I had leaned onto my passenger side slider and SNAP. With the ARB off and Warn selectable hub unlocked was able to winch out and get off the trail safely. Because of the snow my GP cam didn't get any good footage but if I find any worth posting I will share here. I would have liked to see more people out there but I think me and my bro were the only two trucks on the trail. Its a place to visit for any wheeler/off-roader of all degrees of capability. Fun place to play. Be safe out there.

I love coming here at least once a month. It's been a great place to learn what works and what doesn't. And I love testing new products on my old k5. The people here are very cool it's always fun to wheel around and watch the little rc crawlers.
